To bring back some of that old world experience of traveling and sharing adventures.
Knots are cool, nots are not cool.
I haven't slept in ten days, because that's too long ;)
I am not a religious sort. I understand most people believe in a higher power (here in the USA) and that's fine by me. I'm just letting you know in case you need to be in a space with someone that thinks the same as you do.
I'm not much of a partier but do look forward to gatherings with old friends and soon to be friends.
Dare to be foolish. It rounds off those square corners.
Around a campfire, late at night, talking with a soon to be good friend, I was stunned honest. Funny how a stranger can be easier to talk to than a close friend or lover, no?
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
My modest home was built in 1951 but I've remodeled parts of it to make it a little nicer but like all houses the wish list keeps growing.
I take my shoes off before going into my house and ask my friends to do the same. It's a Japanese thing that stuck around from childhood.
If I get the privilege of surfing your couch I'll do my best to be the good guest that you hope everyone to be. For me that means leaving things cleaner than when I got there, helping out with things like dishes, cooking, and will be mindful of time when the house needs to be quiet.
It's been a fun way to virtual travel, see the world through worldly eyes, add to already great circles of friends, try new things, share new stories, and have fun for the sake of having fun!
In my free time I can often be found with a handful of friends Jeeping in the mountains, camping, and with yet other friends, dancing.
I like to sing, often, even though I'm actually pretty bad at it (not being modest here).
I bought an ukulele a while ago and try to learn on it every now and then. I do love that thing. Sometime soon I hope to be able to play a song or two, maybe sing along with some friend's around a campfire.

Music, Movies, and Books
Currently I'm reading "The Little Prince" on loan from a friend as a favorite of her childhood books. I'm a big fan of NPR (Car Talk, Wait Wait, Radio Lab, This American, Fresh Air), The Daily Show, and Family Guy.
I'm into music artists such as Nightmares on Wax, Ella Fitzgerald, Anuhea, Goldfrapp, Lily Allen, Kate Nash, Lenny Kravitz, Theivery Corporation, Angie Stone, Sam Cooke, Bebel Gilberto, Amy Winehouse, Jackie Wilson, Nightmares on Wax, The Crystal Method, Benny Goodman... I have an affinity of things old and with character, the 1950's are one of my favorite vintage eras.
Singin' In The Rain, Anchors Away, American In Paris, The Professional, Ratatouille, True Grit, UP, .
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Magnets. Those things are amazing! Seriously, have you thought about it? They don't need batteries, they can be in any size or shape, they can hold up a photo on a refrigerator for an eternity or power a car. Amazing!
Stars... when I think that there are more stars than there are grains of sand on all the beaches in the entire world, that blows my mind.
Teach, Learn, Share
Let's go find a dance floor or some live music. Lindy Hop, Collegiate Shag, Jive, Boogie Woogie, and Blues dance the night away.
Let's go camping! Now that summer is here there are gobs of old mining trails to explore and campsites to relax in.
Let's make something in my shop. Maybe weld up an indestructible coffee cup that can travel the world with you?
